Luis Orbey's story

Luis is twenty-five years old and and says that the greatest priority in his life are his wife and one-year-old son. "They have become the apple of my eye, and I know that in order to improve our economic condition, I need to try and strengthen my business, thereby guaranteeing them better life opportunities." With these words, Luis declares that this is the greatest motivation that propels him forward. For several years, he has worked in extracting sand from the beach, an activity that has provided him with sustenance and a home for his family. Today, he is requesting a loan in order to buy a vehicle and the necessary tools that will allow him to improve his productivity and increase his profits.
